I am almost there (by giving it another shot at the ide sources):

   if (p1.x>length(Line)+1) or (Line='') then exit;
   SynEdit1.GetWordBoundsAtRowCol(p1, x1, x2);
   // There must be a saner way than subtracting 2
   p1.x := x1-2;
   SynEdit1.GetWordBoundsAtRowCol(p1, x1, x2);
   WordToken := copy(Line, x1, x2);

However, what is the correct way to go back to the previous token? 
Subtracting 2 is not the way.
